Screwy Science

Doctor September Hammer Grewbles-Fiddleshire McSergeant of the newly formed Ministry of Silly Names has notified Tiny Tickle UnRadio's Powers That Be of a website dedicated to silly molecule names. The Powers That Be, being intensely technophobic, tried to delete the site but succeeded only in disabling their computers rather severely. Consequently, they are unable to prevent us from informing you of the site...

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, it's called Molecules with Silly or Unusual Names and it has not one, not two, but three pages!

We hope you enjoy your stay. Please keep off the grass and dispose of all litter in the waste receptacles provided. Please note that Doctor McSergeant is not affiliated with herself in any way. Thank you.

Some interesting stuff there ... a little too much taboo lexis humour for me but some of it was pretty amusing.

Those silly scientists! They think up the craziest naming conventions and then wonder why they end up with so many rude or funny chemical names! I'm glad I'm not a scientist!

Oh wait... I am. Oops.

Silly, silly scientists? I think that you might get more people to pay attention at GCSE if things were a little more bizarre.

I am part of the campaign for more bizarreness in science.
Are you?

Our resident science correspondent replies:

Yes and no.

And I mean that scientifically.
Blogger Blinky The Potato Girl Said...  
Ah, a scientific yes or no. Now I understand everything.
What about gravity? How can we make gravity more bizarre?

Turn it upside down on alternate 29ths of February.

But only when it's raining.

And someone in Argentina is currently contemplating the exact spelling of 'Supercalifragilisticespialidocious'.
